Autumn Splendor Arts Tour
HOST SITE APPLICATION
The Autumn Splendor Arts Tour (ASAT) is a month long, tri-county event (Beaver, Butler & Lawrence Counties) sponsored by the Stray Cat Studio in Beaver Falls. We encourage art tourism, as well as admiration for the local fall foliage of this region. The first three annual tours have been a wonderful beginning to this tradition, with many local and out-of-town visitors to our multiple locations. In ASAT 2017, there will only be a few major Regional Hosts (2-3 per area) who will be considered the major “artsy” draws on the Tour, will have their events listed, and will be promoted as the “must-see” destinations.
Regional Host Benefits: (IF you provide worthwhile events and work hard to promote the event fully):
Many new visitors to their site or gallery
Highlighted exposure in the brochure as a Regional Host
Social media features about their business or establishment
Increased traffic during an otherwise slower month
Supplies to promote the Autumn Splendor Arts Tour Event (high-quality brochures, lawn signs and/or posters, some prepared social media postings)
As a Regional Host, you would be expected to:
Hold 2 major events (or more!), and ways for visitors to engage your artistic venue throughout the month of October 2017.
Recruit 10 “Worthwhile Stops” (businesses who are not able to function as “Regional Sponsors”, i.e. restaurants, coffee shops, specialty stores, etc.). These people would ideally be in your region and would make coming to your area more desirable. Their fees for being an advertiser will also help fund the printing costs. (Forms & former sample brochures available.)
Promote the event through social media (a few pre-made posts will be sent to you, but we encourage you to make several of your own using the photos and ASAT logo we provide), distribute 1000 brochures, posters or signs, and other marketing as appropriate.
Pay $150 (Early bird Discount) or $200 (Nov. 1-Feb. 1) toward brochure printing and other group costs.
Contribute time through decision-making meetings and committee tasks as needed.
Fees are as follow:
$150 Early Bird Discount up to and including October 31, 2016
$200 Up to and including February 1, 2016
**NO HOST SITES WILL BE RECEIVED AFTER FEBRUARY 1, 2016 without a late fee of $50**
